Book Review: The Undead Next Door by: Kerrelyn Sparks

Summary: Three signs that something is very different with your mew man:
1. He sleeps all day . . . which would be annoying except he's so attentive at night.
2. He's attacked by sword-wielding assailants, yet insists he can handle it on his own.
3. He never seems to age.
Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive . . . so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.

This book didn't hold me completely enthralled as some of the previous books in the 'Love at Stake' series did, but it still wasn't bad at all. Ms. Sparks has a very definitive writing style; she has a humor and wit about her writing and characters I haven't quite seen anywhere else.

I hadn't even been thinking about reading Jean-Luc's story until I actually got to this book. He took me by surprise though, I quickly fell in love with him just as I have with all the other awesome male protagonists in this series. His choice in female was pretty surprising as well, but welcome, I am glad he wanted a normal women, but, I am getting kind of sad for some of the female harem vamps, I wonder if they are going to get their HEAs.

  3. I see you're on something of a Kerrelyn Sparks kick lately!

    I didn't like this book at all, I have to admit. Jean-Claude just has no bite to him! He's not dangerous or vampiric at all.

    I know Sparks is all about writing nice characters, and in the previous books it didn't bother me, but there wasn't enough tension or drama to hold my attention in this one.
